In progress

On the needles right now, I have the Classic Elite Geneva capelet.  
 in these colors:
Citrine, for the body,
Night Denim, for the stripe outlines, and
Orchid, for the inside of the stripes.

The yarn is "Riveting," from Classic Elite --- it's made from recycled denim.  This is a fun pattern.  It's all garter, which you can probably see, but the stripes come in often enough to keep things interesting.

On another pair of needles, I have South West Trading Company's

and
held together to make this:
The sequins on the String-Along are clear, which makes their sparkliness even stronger.  This isn't quite as much fun as the capelet, but if I need to knit without looking at my work, it's perfect.

  1. Both will be beautiful!

    My knitting is currently non-existent. Mostly because my right elbow is bothering me, and knitting bothers it. So thank you for the vicarious experience. :-)

  2. Kim. GREAT picks for your knitting. I LOVE the colors you've chosen. The denim base is perfect, one of my favorite starter colors for sure.
    The bead work will be so pretty KIM!!
